Southside, for your knowledge, we dont revel in useless, unverifiable propaganda. Stop trying to claim some attention for yourself.
that aside, it's an amazing story - one in a million, Jessica Lynch, was incredibly lucky.
Reports are now saying she was never either wounded or stabbed. Regardless, her legs and arm were seriously injured.
Let me say, however. the true heros in this story are: 1) the Iraqi man, without whom none of this would have happened, and without whom this girl wouldve had her leg amputated in iraq by today, which would likely lead to her death according to reports; this man also put his family and own life in serious jeopardy, not to mention the commitment to walk 6 miles both ways from and to the hospital and give sensitive info to the Marine Recon force, and Marine 7h battalion.
The second heros are the Marines themselves. Because of the nature of their job, you wont hear about the incredible feats they do day and day out, but they are the ones who actually took the fire to save Lynch. They're the ones whose lives were on the line during the operation.
Im just as grateful for what happened as anyone here, dont get me wrong.
However, Lynch is being hailed as a hero without being one. She was a POW and, unfortunately thats all. Was she tough as nails? Yeah. Does that mean that anyone who will fight off the enemy when confronted by it, and enduring 8 days without food are heros? No. They're simply soldiers, doing what they're heavily trained to do.
Was the Air Force pilot who ejected from his plane in Bosnia years ago a hero? No, he was a soldier, who, luckily was saved by the Marines. Were the three army soldiers who were POWs in Kosovo heros after enduring days and days in enemy hands? No, they were soldiers.
A hero is someone who puts his life on the line to save someone else when odds dictate against it.
That said, its very heartwarming to see such an amazing feat.
Of course, according to a few in here, these Marines who saved her life and without whom none of this would have taken place would much rather be getting laid and enjoying simple college life instead of being responsible for the life of their fellow soldiers.
On a final note, is Lynch a hottie or what? I saw her pic in regular clothes, and hmmm she's pretty hott...
